Choreographer’s note: "And at midnight..." is the first part of what will eventually become a full-length evening work. It is inspired in part by the true story of a family of eight sisters and one brother who were neighbors of my mother’s family in Aden, Yemen. The house they lived in became known as “The Burning House” because of the fighting, screaming and cursing that was heard from it at all hours of the day and night. The story, “The Burning House,” is a morality tale about nine children doomed to a life filled with rage, unhappiness and loneliness. Other source material included the paintings of Marc Chagall and Lorca’s “Blood Wedding.” The soundtrack of the piece is comprised primarily of Jewish love songs and hymns from the Yiddish, Ladino and Yemenite (Judeo-Arabic) traditions. --Barak Marshall
